Title: Offensive Cybersecurity in the NIST Cybersecurity Framework

Abstract

Government and corporate computer systems are attacked, networks are penetrated by hackers, and enterprises are protected by demilitarized zones. Language that until recently was used to describe security and warfare in military settings has now become common-place in cybersecurity discussions. The concepts of pre-emptive attack, counterattack and offensive defense fit the linguistic cultural thread of security in cyberspace, at least in part due to the taxonomy adopted by cybersecurity as a discipline.
